Mama's Baby Cupcakes has 2 prizes up for grabs!
Both prizes are US only

Prize #1: Contours® Options® 3-Wheeler Stroller 

I wrote my full review last week but the best features of this stroller is that it has an infant seat adapter, and then with the regular seat, like shown above, baby can face out or face parent! Retail value ranging from $125-$190 depending on the store. 

Prize #2: Tiny Love Play Mat & Halo SleepSack

The Tiny Love Play Mat is great because it has the first movable arch and has a number of toys and crinkle objects for stimulation and fun. You can read my review for further details and great pictures!

Halo SleepSack is a great and SAFE alternative to blankets. Helping to lower the number of SIDS babies, Halo was created after a tragedy so other parents could have the safest options for their children. My review will better help you understand why they're so beneficial!


Enter one or both Rafflecopters below for your chance to win!

Halo SleepSack Review


Our founder Bill Schmid and his wife lost their first born to SIDS. From this tragedy, HALO and its mission were born. For over 15 years we've been educating parents about safe sleep practices and a portion of every sale goes to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths.  Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets.  Today, HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are the #1 trusted choice of hospitals, and are used nationwide to help babies sleep safely from the start.

I was kind of "on the road" when I took this. I had just pulled out of our driveway and took this while at the stop sign.

Hop Along Friday 7/27

Welcome to the Hop Along Friday! As most of you may be aware of, GFC will no longer be available to self hosted blogs and non blogger blogs shortly. We don't want to leave all of those people out! So, we are adjusting our hop to include everyone! There are other ways to follow blogs such as Google+, Networked Blogs, and various other options. We want everyone to link up!



Here is what we would love for you to do. Please link up your blog and at the end of it, leave how you would like to be followed.

Example: Chubby Cheeks Thinks *Google+"

This way, readers aren't coming to your blog and are at a loss for how to follow you. It is simple and easy and the same as it has always been but with more options to include everyone!

As always, while we don't require that you follow us, we would love it if you would since it takes time to set up the hop and to spread the word. And we will follow you back if you follow us and leave us a comment! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any one of the other hostesses.


1. Follow each of our hostesses:

Over The Meadow Play Mat from Imagine Toys Review


Imagine Toys is a specialty toy store guided by a mission of providing quality toys that encourage children to use their imaginations. We're picky about the toys we select and strive to offer unique toys and accessories that are fresh and different from what you might find at a mass-market toy store. Imagine Toys buyers are parents themselves and have taken the time to test products with children of appropriate age to make sure our products offer plenty of fun and educational play value.


HABA is the maker of this play mat you see above. They started in 1938 by making wooden toys, and now focus on trying to give the most out of each toy for your child's interest and development.

Photo A Day July- #24



This was a hard day for me because I do not like sharing photos of strangers. 
If we're in public, I try my hardest to NOT get other people in pictures, especially children, so I am sharing this photo instead. 

THIS IS A STRANGER
I googled star tattoos a long time ago and this popped up. 
I WILL get this tattoo one day, but three stars, one for each of the girls


Beezer Playhouse Giveaway! 7/31





 Kids love playhouses. Indoors, outdoors, for an afternoon, or as a permanent fixture in your playroom Beezer Playhouses are the perfect setting for hours of creative pretend play. Our Playhouses are constructed from durable, 100% recyclable plastic and cardboard and disassemble in just minutes so your playhouse can easily be stored away under a bed or in a closet. Beezer decals allow the playhouses to be decorated into a cool boys clubhouse or a cute girls cottage; and the all-white interior is a blank canvas to be customized. Beezer Playhouses are perfect for smaller spaces where there isn’t room for a permanent plastic playhouse and they are great for grandparents, home day cares, and birthday parties. Beezer Playhouses are definitely “Fun Right Out Of The Box!”

Boys and Girls Playhouse Set

A secret boys only hide out or a cute princess cottage - you get to decide with this awesome boys and girls cottage playhouse set. With almost 200 fun decals to decorate your playhouse any way you choose, this is the ultimate playhouse for creative children; and perfect for parents, grandparents, or home day cares where space is limited and play spaces are shared.
When it's time to clean up, Beezer Playhouses collapse and fold up to store in the convenient storage and carrying case which is designed to fit easily under a single bed. Beezer Playhouses are cute, durable, and interactive with plastic windows and a strong plastic doorframe. The double thickness cardboard door features a fun doorknob that is easy for kids to turn and plastic hinges which make the door far stronger and more durable than any other cardboard playhouse. Beezer Playhouses walls and roof are constructed from amazingly strong, full color cardboard with an all-white interior just waiting to be decorated. The playhouse is 100% recyclable, and just in case your kids are tough on toys, we offer a full set of replacement cardboard walls to allow you to re-use the durable plastic doors, windows, and fasteners.

One lucky winner will receive The Cottage from Breezer Playhouses.

Giveaway ends July 31th at 11:59pm, open to US residents, ages 18+. To enter please use the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
